Please tell us Denes, what flag do you see in the link?

Again - I see I need repeat this over and over again - it's not what I see or believe, it's the historical fact.

The name of the file clearly gives the answer:
File:Flag of German Reich (1935–1945)

It's not the flag of the NSDAP (Nazi) Party, i.e. the Nazi flag.

@ALL:

don't understand why there's a need to discuss what is a Nazi-flag ?
It's pretty clear:
Red-ground / white circle / black Swastika.

As mentioned by Seeker, it is not were the symbol Swastika came from ( i know it's a religious symbol) but what people see and imply with it.

And well, any reenactor who exposes such a flag, doesn't matter were it is, or salute with straight arm is simply ignorant (in my eyes his even a stupid). In most Reenacting-Groups (maybe except in USA) this would result in imidiat expulsion from the group.
Living history does not mean anything is allouwd what was common in that period of time, it means to show the history with as little as possible offence for other peoples feelings.

At least in the reenactment-group i plan to form such things never would happen without clear measurements.

Means:
No Nazi-flags or Wehrmacht-flags with big swastikas
No salut with straight arm


The thread went a bit in another direction.
But doesn't matter, at least a discussion started up.
And maybe trough that some people get the courage and convidence to participate.


Greetings
Robert

Seeker,
pretty nice uniform you have there.
No interest to participate as a Luftwaffen Officer ?

"Elvetian", that's a very nice gesture on your behalf.
I just hope that you do not think that if a Romanian is not willing to do something, it is just because of money.
Unfortunately the Germans emigrated from Romania in the previous decades. If that would not happen, now you could easily form your reenactment group in Romania.

Hello Florin,

As i live now since 2005 in Romania i know that it probably isn't only the money.
But i do see that 400 to 500 Euro is still a lot of money for many people.
Including me.

I can't change peoples mind, but i can encourage maybe some to participate.
And for those who would like but maybe don't want to spend in the beginning so much i can offer to reduce their initial cost.


Sure many people have fear that visitors will condamn them as fanatics.
But it matters very VERY much how a Reenactor interacts with the public and how he communicates.

Greetings
Robert

That's interesting. When I'll be back home, I'll make a search about the latter subject.
